Collected Public Domain Works of H. P. Lovecraft
recording of Public Domain Works of H. P. Lovecraft.
H. P. Lovecraft’s name is synonymous with horror fiction. His major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: the idea that life is incomprehensible to human minds and that the universe is fundamentally alien. This collection contains 24 Lovecraft works that are in the public domain. You'll find more versions of these stories throughout LibriVox's short story collections and short horror story collections. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia.)

The recording can do with more sound engineering to make it listenable in the car. Otherwise this is an excellent release.

These are some great stories of dream voyages, sci-fi horror and twisted science that have been the inspiration for many modern movies and stories by other writers. H. P. Lovecraft inspired a literary genre, and was the greatist horror writer of the 20th century, yet only four people attended his funeral. I think his stories are to be read and do not carry over well into movies. A respectable movie based on his works has yet to be made, though many have tried.
